At the time of his The War of the Worlds broadcast, Welles encountered the Eighth Doctor and his companion Charley Pollard and shared an adventure involving a real invasion.

Behind the scenes Edit

  • One of the members of Welles' Mercury Theatre of the Air troupe, who participated in both The War of the Worlds and Citizen Kane, George Coulouris, guest starred in the 1964 Doctor Who story The Keys of Marinus as Arbitan. Welles' line "George, what are you doing with those keys?" in Invaders from Mars is an in-joke referring to Coulouris' role in Doctor Who.
